SEATTLE, WA (The Spread) - Quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks aren't close to agreeing on a long-term deal according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Per Rapoport, Wilson wants to "be paid as if" he was a free agent and "thoughts of a fully guaranteed contract have not left" the quarterback's mind. Wilson reportedly wants to be the NFL's highest-paid player and is willing to play out the final deal of his rookie contract before testing the market a year from now.
Of course, the Seahawks are likely to place their franchise tag on him next offseason. But whether the team pays him nor or next year, Wilson is due for a massive raise seeing as how he's set to make $1.5 million in 2015 and has already won a Super Bowl.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Seahawks are currently 13/2 to win the 2016 Super Bowl, putting them behind only the Packers (6/1) in terms of odds.
